In general, showers use less energy and water than a bath. See the link below for more details. However, if you take longer than the average 4-5 minute shower, then you might save more water and energy with a bath.

Hi guidrymom,

I agree with cgomes that a shower typically uses less water than a bath. However, there are lots of variables to both a shower and a bath: duration of the shower, the volume of water coming out of your shower head (for instance, a low flow shower head vs. a normal shower head), and for a bath: volume of the tub, how much water is "wasted" and not collected because it is too cold, etc.

To determine whether or not a shower/bath for you and your family uses less water, you'd have to do some measuring/estimating.
